Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2017

Estimate: SGD1100-SGD1300

Appellation: Pauillac, Bordeaux (1855 1er Cru Classe)

IN. Excellent appearance.

This lot comes from a private collector who bought through en-primeur. The wine has been in commercial storage since arrival.

"It opens slowly, cautiously with restrained notes of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries, warm blackcurrants and wild blueberries, followed by emerging notions of smoked meats, fragrant earth, crushed rocks and lilacs with touches of cast-iron pan and Marmite toast. Medium-bodied, the palate is deceptively light and quite ethereal on entry, growing in the mouth to reveal elegant layers of energetic red and black fruits with tons of savory accents. Framed by exquisitely ripe, wonderfully fine-grained tannins, it has exhilarating freshness and a very long, hypnotically perfumed finish. On a final note, the alcohol here is a jaw-dropping 12.5%, which is something of a miracle considering the ripeness of the Cabernet. A total head-turner, I cannot wait to follow the development of this wine!" - RP 97pts
